My Students

I serve and educate about 100 to 150 students with special needs students. These children are amazing, challenging, energetic and so much more. My students mostly reside in a low socioeconomic community. My students all have IEPs, in which they get special educations services. They range from 1st and 2nd grade level math to Pre-Calculus and more.

My vision for my students is that they go on and apply themselves in the real world, like I expect them to apply themselves in my classroom.

My Project

My students are constantly needing supplies, like glue sticks, scissors, etc. In addition, the shredder would help correctly dispose of sensitive documentation, such as IEP paperwork.

In our classroom, we are constantly using glue sticks for our interactive notebook, which we use daily.

Our classroom goes through about 5 glue sticks a week, which adds up fast. My students are constantly building their gross fine motor developmental skills as well and always benefit from using scissors. In addition, my students require constant attention and motivation, which is where the posters would come in handy. Please support our classroom. We would greatly appreciate it!
